Gulfstream II

Gulfstream II Overview

The Gulfstream GII Represented a major change in the Gulfstream Lineup. The now iconic placement of engines in the rear fuselage allowed a lower wing location and a larger cabin.The Rolls Royce Spey jet engines were mounted on the rear of the fuselage and the tail was modified in a T configuration to accommodate the location of the new engines. The wings were swept back to increase range and altitude. The aircraft is capable of flying up to Mach 0.88 at 45,000 feet (3,761 meters) with a range of 3,680 nautical miles (6,815 kilometers). The cabin can accommodate up to 19 passengers with a typical 12-15 passenger configuration. More than 250 GIIs sold during the aircraft’s production run including three variations. The first one with wing-tip tanks to increase range, the second, Gulfstream installed the new redesigned, G3 wing. This increased fuel capacity gave the G2 more range and better performance. The third G2 variation was developed by Aviation Partners (a aerospace engineering company developing products to maximize performance for different aircraft) added blended winglets to the wing for enhanced performance, range and fuel efficiency for a reasonable price. Gulfstream went on to produce 258 G2’s.
